More red

This weekend I visited Alcazaba of Málaga. It is right in the center on a hill overlooking the city and the harbour.

Never thought of visiting before, but I’m sure I will go again. The view is wonderful and the yards and plants are lovely. There were red begonias like the ones above everywhere.

Maybe I’ll show you some more photos later.

No, we did not drink the wine from these barrels. We got them when they were empty.

One of them we cut in half and planted one of the halves with a lime tree, the other with a mandarine tree and some succulents to cover the earth. The pink flower is the succulent that is blooming now.

We haven’t decided yet what to use the rest of the barrels for. Ideas are very welcome :)

Just a few more impressions from el Alhambra and its gardens. From my previous post I learned that the pretty pink (and orange in the background) flowers are called zineas. There was like a whole carpet of them. We got to Alhambra too late in the afternoon the get tickets to enter the palace as only a restricted number of persons are allowed in every morning and afternoon. Anyway, the gardens alone are worth the visit.

Enjoy your weekend.


from the gardens in the Alhambra. A beautiful place in Granada, a few hours drive from my place and perfect to bring visitors who are interested in gardens, archictecture or history e.g.

Sorry about this unplanned break, but visits from family kept me occupied elsewhere.

This is a cornerview post. More impressions starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.
